Ghost Owl

Last night while trying to figure how to use my long lens to take a night-time photograph of an owl that was high in a pine tree, I took this image. One of many that was blurred and unusable as an ID shot but interesting as an abstract image.

Barn Owl – Victorian Lifer 311

Over the last few weeks people have been reporting a number of Barn Owls along one of the roads at the Western Treatment Plant. I decided that I would take a look and see if I could find any – I have never actually seen any in the wild before. I went mid afternoon and waited for sunset and for the owls to appear. I eventually saw 3 and took many photos. None turned out well except for these two images. Very pleased to get my 311th Victorian bird and to actually get a few images as well.
